If they are too small, then īfit ī. If you mean they don īt look good together, I would say that. They don īt look good together. They don īt go with each other.

Suit = generally, to the look
Match = when clothes look nice together as an outfit and/or maybe colours are suitable
Fit = they are your size.
Go well together = Match.
This shirt and skirt don īt MATCH at all. (they look bad together)
This shirt doesn īt suit me = I don īt like this shirt, I don īt look good in it.
This skirt doesn īt fit me, it īs too big.
Jeans and dresses rarely go well together :)

You say - They don īt match. Unless you mean that they don īt fit YOU - too large or too small.
